"Energy is the issue of our time, both globally and here in Oregon," Kitzhaber said in a press release. "No single issue will have a greater impact on our state's economy, environment and quality of life in the coming decade, and I am committed to pursuing the policy, programs and practices needed to ensure we shape a prosperous and sustainable future."

To achieve his goals, Kitzhaber proposes to meet all of the state's new electricity demands through energy conservation and increased efficiency. He also aims to enhance the state's development of clean-energy infrastructure by removing financial and regulatory barriers. Kitzhaber also plans to push the market's transition toward alternative-energy vehicles.
